      ignates much of its aid for specific projects designed to strengthen political reforms in recipient countries, which can affect rights and democracy directly by building civil society or strengthening institutions. However, the EU’s efforts to promote democracy and human rights through its aid giving face well known problems.   Donors created a whole new range of programs to support democratic transitions, from elections assistance and political party aid to civic education programs and legislative support.

        By differentiating between two types of development assistance (economic aid and democratic aid) and two channels through which this assistance is delivered (government and civil society), Dietrich and Wright explore how foreign aid influences democratic outcomes in sub-Saharan African countries during the post-Cold War period.

      Following the transition of most African states to democracy in the s, civil society was widely regarded as essential to facilitate these transient democracies into consolidation. This thesis sets out to deconstruct the role of civil society in the democratic consolidation process of Ghana and Nigeria. Ghana’s experience since the early s indicates that external aid can significantly impact a country’s democratic transition. External democracy assistance has been a crucial, positive factor in Ghana’s steady evolution into an electoral democracy over the past two decades. Continuing gaps in the quality of Ghana’s democracy confirms, however, that even sustained external support.
